That's really interesting. Mine seems to work after no problem. My biggest gripe are the horizontal lines that run across the screen on the rear TV . In my opinion this because the video cable is poor quality.

Steve, when running a dvd in the indash dvd player, what TV's can you view that on? Haven't played with that part of our system yet.

Just tried it out, worked first time. Now I just need to be able to get to the earphone jack in the bedroom. Impossible without removing the TV which is hard mounted to the cabinet, so I'm going to add a metal mounting bracket back there so we can remove the TV from the bracket like the bunk room TV does now.

Actually it's not the quality of the cable-it's just that RF/coax is the very lowest quality signal. AV, component, S Video, and HDMI are all higher resolution (I listed them in order of signal quality).

My Satellite Receiver puts out a beautiful image with HDMI but RF signal via coax looks terrible on a higher resolution flat screen TV.

I've been researching "HDMI over Coax" as a way to get a better signal into the bedroom TV. Or maybe even sending a HDMI signal via wireless adapter. Both are available.

Solved this, and an audio hum issue, on our 2012 Solera "S" with ground loop isolators on both stereo lines and on the video coax. See my post (#8) on this older thread: Noise/Hum through Surround Sound system.

Would this work instead? http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B004LG...J5TGZHP3TMPF89

For more detail on the ground loop isolators, see my post #83 on this thread: Mods & Purchases - fun thread
Note the Stinger isolators on Amazon look to be many times more expensive now than they were when I did this mod - I would use something else today!

What's nice about using the earphone jack is, once plugged in it cuts out the TV speakers so as not to disturb anyone else.
